The stunning Victorian Estate of Hallsannery plays host to a very special event: North Devon's very first Vintage Wedding Fair. Featuring over 40 fabulous suppliers, Hallsannery will open its doors to reveal a beautiful refurbishment, making it an inspired venue for a typically English wedding with a very 'vintage' twist.

Event organisers, Blue Fizz Events have set the stage for a sumptuous array of specially-chosen suppliers to exhibit their vintage inspired products and services.  From the 1700s era right through to 1980s style, all couples looking to add a little glamour from a bygone age are invited to whet their appetites and spark their imagination in breathtaking surrounds.

The Swing Kings from Plymouth will set the scene with an ambient mix of jazz and swing,  alongside 'Til there was Uke' from Weymouth: a  duo performing an eclectic range of covers from the 1920s to modern day.

Brides will be 'wowed' by a captivating catwalk show, which will take place on the stunning sweeping staircase in the main house set to a spellbinding soundtrack by Sorrelli Strings.

Award winning Cornish based Couturier Annalise Harvey will reveal  a selection of gowns from her 'Nostalgia ' collection. Lily and Louie of London design will be showcasing a selection of elegant and fun designs inspired by the 1950s, while bridal wear providers Frilly Frocks, The Bridalwear Company and Always & Forever will also be showcasing their vintage inspired  gowns and accessories.

From decor to traditional garden games (The Very Vintage Hire Company) and jewellery (Coopers Couture and Grace Burrell Designs),  to transport (Mr Bo Jangles and Cars of Distinction), the Vintage Candy Cart, Mabel the Vintage Ice Cream Van and a vintage 'Pop Up Hair & Beauty Parlour' featuring the fabulous Claire Bowing Beauty & Make-up and Hair by Lyndy Ewings - every angle is explored in supreme style.

Every visitor to the fair will receive a complimentary glass of bubbly and canapes. Entry costs £2.50 with all brides receiving a goody bag.
